Jewelry Organizer

Often made of felt, velvet or suede, jewelry inserts for drawers offer multiple compartments for small items like rings, bracelets, watches and glasses. Some come with locks to keep valuables safe. Photo courtesy of Studio Becker


Hutches or hutch-style dressers are popular because they combine open and closed storage. Available with different drawer and shelf combinations, a tall hutch can also act as a space divider for cohabitation closets. Photo courtesy of California Closets

Simple additions, like baskets or plastic containers, are ideal for storing scarves, belts, headbands and even jewelry. Clear plastic storage containers are also easy to stack on the floor when shelf space is limited, and items stay visible, making them easy to locate.

Other budget-friendly accessories include a closet clothing rod that can be easily adjusted to fit between two walls and a shoe rack to help keep your favorite footwear from ending up on the floor.

Of course, there are also several closet accessories that are a worthy investment for those who are looking to make larger renovations. New closet systems help to utilize as much vertical wall space as possible with customizable storage solutions, like adjustable shelves, jewelry compartments, pull-down clothing rods and corner shelving units.

No matter the closet accessories you choose, giving everything a home of its own is the key to optimal closet organization, leaving it the clutter-free space it was made to be.
